Wow, that's a fundamentally ******** message. Nice work.

For your next feat maybe you can show how that race had **** all to do with messengers or nerds.

Keep holdin it down for the reals, dillweed.

hey, how did you place? not very well if you didn't receive any of the boatload of prizes.

regardless, 1st place got a frame. i don't think he is complaining, why are you?

please do not spew misinformation. 1st place was the winner of the race. the winning poker hand received a great prize, but i don't think anyone thought he actually won the race! you're an idiot for thinking that!

not unless the milwaukee messengers are openly inviting people to come to their race. thereby kind of defeating the need to formally invite people. ha

When: April 29th, 5pm
Where: Chicago, Il
Why: to raise money for the Chicago Courier's Union!
What?!: Did you know there are buildings downtown that were bombed in the 70's by Puerto Rican independence groups? Did you know Emma Goldman is buried only a few miles from where you probably live? Did you know there are buildings in Humboldt Park that were stormed by the FBI because of suspected terrorist training? Do you know about the radical labor history of Chicago?

This alleycat will radicalize your ass way more than critical mass, all of the check-points will be sites of radical history in Chicago. Ending with a party. We'll have bands and food and beer.

The course is being drawn up, so some of the info is TBA, but mark your calendars!

Hey y'all,

I need help with making fliers for the above race. i cannot draw! i would love to see a great hand-drawn flier. maybe kids on bikes with molotov cocktails made out of 40oz's? i know i know, cheesy, but still sweet!

anybody interested? other ideas are welcome!

steve

hmmm...i'll consider myself not invited because i don't live anywhere near that race. now i'll be bitter AND justified!

oh, and chuck_norris, that "a winner is you!" picture should really get used somewhere.

Crushing the Commonwealth

Things are still being hashed out here, not all of us in Stillers' land are thinking Super Bowl.

Crushing the Commonwealth or,
this is a long ride for someone with nothing to think about.


Last weekend in April, Philadelphia to Pittsburgh.

Route follows PA Bicycle Route S with connectors to Philly and Pgh.



Entry Fee-something you would want after finishing the ride

Start- Liberty Bell Friday April 28th

End-Point State Park

Distance-350 to 400 miles

Questions-randoneepa@gmail.com

Warning!!!!!

This is an unsupported event. You get lost, get tired, break your bike, YOU need to get yourself home. No sag wagon, no aid stations, no drop bags. Think alley cat, now think much much bigger.

More as we settle on things.

T-shirts and spoke cards for all finishers, maybe some home brew if I get the time to fire a batch up.

As of now we have no super enduro folks who may attempt this ride in one long push. All folks interested so far plan on sleeping for a spell, so this may be a bit more of a friendly contest than a full on hammer fest for the super fit.

more info on

What is at 500 San Marcos St.? There is an alleycat in Fort Worth the same day with a ****ton of prizes including a new KHS Flite.

edit: I just figured out what is at that address. Why is an alleycat starting at a Scooter Store?
